Jocelyn is an office grunt by day and creator of romance and adventure by night. Born a farmer’s daughter with a vivid imagination, she spent her childhood dreaming up stories that remained untold until 2010.

With no formal training, she relied on the honest feedback of her writing group to take her from that first short story all the way to THE END of her first novel. She now has ten published novels and is working on two more for Entangled Publishing.

When she isn’t slinging words, you can find her kayaking or enjoying the serenity of family life in her little house in the woods.

Very recently, I had a looming a deadline that stressed me out to the point I couldn't write for a while. Life's various crises often get in the way, which happens A LOT.
There's really only one cure for all of these psychological road blocks, and that is time and distraction. I step away from the WIP and do something else. Read. Do karate. Go for a long walk. Do anything but force ideas through my head. Usually inspiration will strike again when I'm doing the most mundane things, and I'm off and running again. Works every time.(less)

The day has finally arrived. Four years of sweat and tears went into the creation of Nightingale, and I’m so happy to set it free into the world.

I knew from the start I wanted to set the book in my home region of Muskoka. It was harder than I thought to describe just how beautiful and unique this area is, but I hope it’s captured within the pages. If you’v...

Nightingale by Jocelyn Adams
"Oh my goodness, this book was amazing! On a scale of 1 to 10 for swoon-worthiness, it gets a 20. If the author had asked me what kind of hero could make my heart skip a beat, Micah Laine would be it. Look up "tortured hero" in the romance dictiona..." Read more of this review »

Nightingale by Jocelyn Adams
"3.5 stars.

Two souls. Two stories to tell. One island. Seven days. If you’re fond of a story which has a brooding hero, a lady who is harbouring her own secrets, brings some revelations along the way and is very steamy to boot, then Nightingale mo..." Read more of this review »

“You might be able to send some girls screaming and crying with that ‘I’m a happy little sadist' act but I’m not some girls Rourke. I hope your King finds you with your hands all over me. I hope he pulls his fee-fi-fo-fum trick of his and melts your bones too.”

“You snuck across my yard like a trained mercenary. Dressed in a black getup without so much as a pebble misplaced under your shoe or a crinkled leaf to make a sound. Had the lay of the land within seconds too I bet. Took down a man who outweighs you by fifty pounds as if you done it before. You hardly flinched when I set my gun on you. Now you’re sittin’ there all hunched around yourself like a rabbit in the grass. Definitely runnin’ I just hope it’s not from the law.”

Jocelyn Adams Am I the only one who wishes Goodreads had some place in the book details to denote the intended audience? It's sometimes hard to tell what's YA and what's adult if ages aren't in the blurb.


Émeraude Merci Beaucoup Jocelyn!!
J'adore Lila et Liam, Glass Man!

Erin Jamison Jocelyn, I don't know if you're a big a geek as I am but I read how Larissa used to watch Angel the TV series and wondered why there wasn't a hospital you could go to if you were something other than human. Thus the UGH, underground hospital, and Demonica series was born. Funny where inspiration strikes huh?

Erin Jamison Thanks for the friendship Jocelyn. Eidolon's book is great isn't it? VERY sexy. Were you ever a fan of Angel the TV series?


Cheryl Landmark Thanks for the friend request, Jocelyn.
